A group of students at New York University have launched a #Lost and #Found Valentines campaign on their campus as part of the school’s LiveWellNYU movement. Now we’re borrowing their idea and encouraging everyone involved in the Love is Louder movement to leave messages of support and inspiration around your schools and communities. Here’s how to get involved:
To LOSE a Valentine:
You can either make your own Valentine, download our PDF and print them out (each page has 2 Valentines) or use one you buy from a store. Write a message to inspire or support someone else on the card (you can see some examples from students at NYU below). You can also write a favorite quote or saying. If you don’t use our template, make sure to write loveislouder.com/valentine on it so the finder can get involved too! Take a picture of your card and tweet or post it with the hashtags #lostvalentine & #loveislouder. Put your card in an envelope, write “Open Me” or “This Is For You” on the outside of that envelope, and leave it somewhere on your campus or in your community where it can be found!
If you FIND a Valentine:
Take a picture of your card and tweet or post it with the hashtags #foundvalentine & #loveislouder. Then make your own Valentines to lose using the directions above.
